Nazi Euthanasia Programme

Remembering the Nazi euthanasia of the disabled

Michael Cook | 02 April 2012

The Italian Parliament has declared January 27 a “day of remembrance” for victims of Nazi ideology. In the first place, this means the Shoah, the extermination of 6 million Jews. But thousands of disabled people were also killed between 1940 and 1941 until protests by locals and the Bishop of Münster, Clemens von Galen. This video is a timely reminder of how indifferent we can become to the lives of the disabled.
